In 1516 Duke Wilhelm IV of Bavaria issued the Purity Law, the oldest foodstuff regulation still in effect today. Beer can only be brewed from malt, hops and water. Franziskaner weiss beers are brewed in strict adherence to the Purity Law. Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse Dunkel wins supporters with its refreshing yet aromatic and full-bodied flavor. This dark, cloudy specialty is a special treat for weiss beer connoisseurs and bock beer aficionados. Deep and dark colored, cloudy with yeast. Brewed with a darker roasted malt which adds some maltiness to the refreshing flavor of the Hefe-Weissbier.
